How to Program Your Kia to a Garage Door Opener



If you have recently purchased a new Kia HomeLink system but are not sure how it works, you have come to the right place. This article provides you detailed instructions that will help you set up your Kia HomeLink system to your garage door opener. 


How to Get Started

One of the main queries that people have is regarding how they can connect their Kia HomeLink system to their garage door opener. To get started with this, you will need to have an old garage door opener. 

First, you will need to press whichever HomeLink button you wish to assign to your garage door while also pushing down the garage door opener button. You will notice the HomeLink light flashing rapidly, at which point you can release both buttons.

Next, you have two options ahead of you. Press the assigned HomeLink button for the garage door, and if you notice the light remaining solid, your programming is now complete. Alternatively, if you press the button and the light blinks rapidly for two seconds, this indicates that your system needs a few more steps before the installation is complete. 

You will need to go inside your garage and find the ‘learn’ or ‘smart’ button located on the garage door motor. Once you have pressed this, you will need to go to your car and push the assigned garage door HomeLink button within thirty seconds. Hold on the button for a few seconds before releasing it. You can repeat these steps as necessary until you find that the garage door has been activated. 

If you are operating a used Kia vehicle, you must erase any previous HomeLink data before you can program your own settings to the system. You can do this by pressing the first and the third HomeLink buttons on the mirror simultaneously.  

Aside from programming your garage door, the HomeLink system provides several other features for you to explore. You can visit the HomeLink website to know about the various ways in which you can use it.
